Norbert is sick and tired of his entire household continuously talking about the ghostly Beppie, whom he doesn't believe is real. By pure coincidence one of his patients turns out to be a former lover of Beppie's.
Norbert is concerned about a female patient, Leonore, who continuously threatens to throw herself off a bridge. Maddy becomes convinced they are having an affair. Jacques tries to ask Beppie for clarity, but is having trouble getting through. It's as if their lines are crossed.
Maddy and Norbert have decided to get a divorce. Beppie stops answering Jacques because he has failed in his mission. Both Norbert and Maddy want custody of Pips, however she would rather have Jacques as her guardian.
Norbert and Maddy are finally back together again, so the time has come for Jacques to join Beppie and enter heaven together. Jacques hastily tries to tie up all his loose ends on Earth. He comes to the conclusion that the only way for him to get more time on earth, is to split Norbert & Maddy up again.
